The board would like to confirm that de GRISOGONO’s Founder, Fawaz Gruosi, has left the company and stepped down from his position as a Board director effective from 31st of December 2018. This was not a sudden decision and Mr Gruosi had been stepping aside from the day-to-day operations for some time.
Elmar Wiederin, Chairman of the Board of de Grisogono, said: “As Founder of this inspirational brand twenty-five years ago, we are thankful to Fawaz Gruosi for his incredible journey, transforming from a niche High Jewellery Maison to the world recognized High Jewellery player it is today. In line with our Board vision and plan, de GRISOGONO is now entering the next chapter of its story. Led by Celine Assimon the skilled team in place, the Design studio and Atelier will continue to drive the design and craftsmanship as before through a collective process, maintaining the traditions of daring creativity for which the brand is known.”
He continued: “de GRISOGONO is and has always been a High jewellery brand, constantly challenging convention and seeking new territories for expression. We took a strategic decision five years ago to expand with the aim of becoming a leading High jewellery and Watch brand. We have been broadening our ranges to reflect the modern and active lifestyle of our clients, with pieces that can accompany them from day to night. We very much look forward to presenting our new collections during our exhibition in Geneva (January 13th – 19th, 2019) which will include our latest daywear fine jewellery.
